Take a Walk on the Wild Side with Estēe Lauder’s New Mattes!

Estēe Lauder 410 Shameless Violet, 430 Extrovert Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick and 130 Bittersweet Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion

When I think of Estee Lauder, I think of sweet old ladies in a strong spicy, floral perfume with their lips and cheeks covered in rouge ready to pinch your cheeks at any given second. Not bold mattes and liquid lipsticks. Estee Lauder has always given off a more classic, mature vibe better suited for those spunky older gals who like to power-walk laps around the mall before it even opens. Not anymore!

Today, Estee Lauder is shaking things up new formulas and bold shades that your grandma wouldn’t dare touch. And I like it! I respect Estee for sticking to her classic guns for all these years but every now and then it’s time to shake things up a bit.

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer Review

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

TGIF! My Friday nights are usually reserved for a glass of wine and Ancient Aliens (or cartoons lol) but a while back I used to be a raging party animal. You couldn’t keep me away from the party and drinks. I’d be sipping and dancing all night until my little legs gave out. Ahhh, those were the days!

Now a days, I’m getting kinda old and I can’t hang like I used to. My stomach turns at the thought of shots and if I have more than 2 cocktails I’m waking up with a hangover, for sure. Yuck!

Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter Review

Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter

I’m usually always telling you guys what hot, new products to try next but a lot of times I discover amazing products from you guys and other bloggers. I’ve lost count how gems I’ve came across from reading reviews. One of my many influencers is Danielle, The Style and Beauty Doctor, another brown girl blogger who’s always coming across the good stuff. One day, she did a review on the Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter and the next thing I knew, I was running out to Walgreens for it.


Urban Decay Teams Up with Gwen Stefani!

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Collection

Now this is going to be interesting. Urban Decay and Gwen Stefani? There’s No Doubt that we’re in store for something good this holiday season! Urban Decay announced on Instagram that they’re finally teaming up with the pop icon to create a limited edition collection set to launch on November 22. Urban Decay is still keeping the colors and products under wraps but I’m expecting a fierce red lipstick and a wicked eyeshadow palette. Fingers crossed they do Gwen justice!

Are you excited for the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Collection?

Sephora’s Serving Lip Infusions!

Sephora 02 Rosewood Elixir Rouge Infusion, 05 Fuchsia Concentrate Rouge Infusion, 20 Dusty Rose Rouge Infusion, 09 Iced Coffee Oil Infusion

Like many people, I used to have a bad habit of going to Sephora and checking out every counter except for the Sephora brand stuff. Sephora’s color collection is usually the heart of the store but I’ve managed to walk right past it every visit for years. Not anymore! After trying the Cream Lip Stains, I always find myself snooping around the Sephora brand stuff for a few minutes before browsing the rest of the store. You never know what gems you might find!

Dior State of Gold Holiday 2015 Collection

Dior State of Gold Holiday 2015

Gold has long been a signature color for the House of Dior. Mr. Dior’s creations incorporated gold in various ways, whether as an opulent adornment on a timeless Dior Grey Bar Suit or in a complete ensemble. Today, looks created by Raf Simons for Dior feature metallic, subtle gold elements to balance audacious shades of red, pink fuchsia or silver. Now, Peter Philips has combined the storied history of Dior Gold and Dior Grey with the modern incarnations of these elegant shades to create a limited edition color collection for holiday. Philips’ vision of gold and radiance incorporates the emblematic Dior Grey with gold to create a subtle, delicate hybrid. This modern shade of Grey-Gold mixes seamlessly with more intense shades of radiant reds and pink and delicate, shimmering nudes for an urban yet sophisticated look.

Eyes are imagined in iridescent and metallic effects, from shimmering grey-gold contrasting with warmer hues of soft burgundy and pale pink, to elegant champagne complemented by regal purple. Lips pop in moisture-rich matte shades of vibrant pink, rosewood, deep red, and fresh pink, while nails complete the look in shades of grey iridescent gold, blazing red, burgundy and sparkling glitter gold. The complexion is luminous, highlighted by shades of golden beige.
